Crover, an Edinburgh, Scotland-based company, has debuted its robotic solution for monitoring grain during the latest TechCrunch Disrupt Battlefield.

It’s a small, football-shaped robot designed to essentially swim inside of a grain silo to offer better insight into the environmental conditions. 

The Crover robot is design to offer a much more complete and targeted analysis of grain storage than traditional static methods. The robot lives inside the silo and dives into its contents when it’s time to offer analysis.  

All of that information is fed into a dashboard, offering users a more complete picture of what’s happening inside.

The robot will be offered through a Hardware as a Service subscription model, running just under $4,000 per robot, per year.

The company is currently shooting for a product launch in May of next year.
